This was a try or should I say an experiment. I never cook this before for my family. So I did the other day, our viand for dinner!
Inspired by ate Cristy Bartolome, one of our shepherd in Marriage Spirituality Holly Family Community. She brought the typical kare-kare during our family day. Since I have almost 10 kilogram of beef brisket froozen I decided to cook it this way.

I tell you it turned out good similar to our kare-kare but something different of vegetables added. I forgot to add red bell peppers which is suitable also, you can use 1 pouch Peanut Sauce Mix which you could get from any asian store. Mine I got from Merkur Markt (Supermarket) near us, and half a bottle or glass of non-sweetened peanut butter (no sugar). Well by next time I’ll show you…have a try!


* 1 kilogram Beef brisket
* 250g Chicharo or Sitsaro
* about 5 pcs. of medium-sized Potatoes
* 1 Onion
* half a head Garlic
* half a glass of non-sweetened Peanut Butter
* some Vegetable Oil
* some Soy sauce
* 1 pouch Peanut Sauce Mix
* some Salt


— Boil beef brisket until tender. Then dissolve a pouch of peanut sauce mix in broth. Heat some vegetable oil in a heavy sauce pan, add onion, garlic and potatoes. Season with soy sauce and salt. Pour about 2 cups of broth into sauce pan, cover and bring to a boil until potatoes done. Then stir in the half glass of no sugar peanut butter, beef, chicharo or sitsaro, and bell peppers (here I forgot to add bell peppers). Lower the heat stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or util everything is done. Careful that the peanut butter does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Adjust salt if necessary. And that’s it:-)
